Structure is a solo exhibition by QSS based artist Majella Clancy. This exhibition is hybrid in its approach encompassing collage, paint, screenprint and inkjet prints. It takes as its starting point found ephemera and material references that come out of an Irish rural experience and in particular their relationship to ideas of home and gendered space. Bearing the history of their own making the paintings appear as pseudo landscapes held together by quasi-architectural fragments and semi-familiar forms. The materiality of making in the studio is held within the work where references to a stage-set or performed space is also played out. Reoccurring motifs imply a support structure, roof, shelter, table, shield or portal and travel from one painting to another activating painted space, refusing any fixed interpretation. Structure, considered here is both a noun and a verb, an object and an action, held in a shifting space of painting.
